PETA Goes Fishing for Support in San Diego

Now this is no fish story.

Members of PETA showed up in downtown San Diego today wearing just about nothing. Their reason for the lack of clothing? To protest commercial fishing and those who consume fish.

The members 'dressed' in silver body paint to appear like sparkling creatures from the sea. The protestors then threw a net over themselves and lay on the ground with a sign next to them reading "Scale Back Cruelty: Stop Fishing".

Editor's Take: We suggest maybe another type of net should have been placed over them. You know, the kind they put over crazy people.... We're all for treating animals with as much kindness, etc. as possible. However, at the end of the day, everyone has a right to a piece of fish or a nice, juicy slab of steak. And if you are in a real party mood, we say order some fish as appetizers before you down that steak. Eat on friends!
